JSR 353: JavaTM API for JSON Processing
Java Specification Requests 353 was filed and accepted by the Java Community Process Program. It was summarized as:
The Java API for JSON Processing (JSON-P) JSRA more complete description was also included:
will develop a Java API to process (for e.g.
parse, generate, transform and query) JSON.
data-interchange format. Many popular web services
use JSON format for invoking and returning the data.
Currently Java applications use different implementation
libraries to produce/consume JSON from the web services.
Hence, there is a need to standardize a Java API for JSON
so that applications that use JSON need not bundle the
implementation libraries but use the API. Applications
will be smaller in size and portable.
